My recent (near) success at surfing has led my weary mind to relaxing, sun-drenched beach music - those sounds that put me back in the water. Here are a couple I plan on enjoying as I nap on the beach this afternoon - recovering from my battle with the waves this morning. Grab a cold beer with a lime and enjoy em with me!
Broken Social Scene - Pacific Theme [buy]
Puts me in the mood for the left coast and the chilly water.
Bob Marley - Get Up Stand Up [buy]
Get up and stand up on that board. Also, hard to imagine beaches with out some reggae music.
Dispatch - Bang Bang [buy]
Great memories of spring break for me with this song, laid back groove, and some beach references.
Jack Johnson - Bubbles Toes [buy]
Jack Johnson is surfing music. The "DLG" that he mentions in this song is supposedly a dorm here on UC Santa Barbara's campus.
The Beach Boys - Sloop John B [buy]
The song's about sailing, but you can't go with out a Beach Boys tune and this is a good one.
